Steve Bannon Says Martin Luther King Jr. Would Be Proud of Donald Trump, and the Internet Can't Even
Former White House strategist Steve Bannon thinks Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "would be proud" of President Donald Trump, telling BBC Newsnight that Trump has done a remarkable job for black and Hispanic Americans.
Martin Luther King III, the eldest son of slain civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., issued an emotional rebuke of President Donald Trump during a sermon on Monday. Preaching to crowded pews on what would have been his father's 89th birthday, King said of Trump, "the president insisted that our nation needs more citizens from white states like Norway, I don’t even think we need to spend any time even talking about what it says and what it is.”
King added that "the problem is that you have a president who says things and has the power to execute and create racism. That's a dangerous power and a dangerous position. We cannot tolerate that."
